FALL 2013

ACTIVITY GUIDE Plus Fall/Winter 2013-2014 Competitive Sports Online Registration Begins August 7, 6 PM

FEATURES INCLUDE:


Above: Roger Carter Community Center's dedication and ribbon cutting on June 15 included County Executive Ken Ulman, Recreation & Parks Director John Byrd, Howard County Housing Director Tom Carbo, County Council members, Recreation & Parks board members, descendants of the late Roger Carter (including his daughter), and members of the community.

Welcome to the Fall 2013 Activity Guide! Browse through to find a program you like, and don’t be afraid to try something new. The range of activities covers all ages and interests, including many programs that we’re eager to offer for the first time. To make navigating this guide easier, we’ve added tabs on the side so you can flip right to the section you’re seeking. We’re especially proud to have opened the new Roger Carter Community Center in Ellicott City in June. This 46,000-square-foot community center includes the only Howard County-owned swimming pool with a diving well and a retractable roof, basketball and volleyball courts, classrooms, fitness and exercise rooms with cardio and Precor strength training equipment, a climbing wall and much more. The expansion of Roger Carter makes a third state-of-the-art community center in Howard County, including Gary J. Arthur in Clarksville and North Laurel. Affordable use packages allow you to get as much out of any or all of the community centers as you want. Our individual center memberships are only $25 for Howard County residents and $50 for non-residents (page 8) per year. The broad Fit4U packages (page 8) allow access to all three centers and offer additional benefits. We encourage you to take advantage of these great centers, whether you become a member or sign up for just one of the many programs featured at them. The Roger Carter Community Center was designed and planned with the needs of the community in mind. That is how we approached each of our community centers, because they are for you! As always, we hope you enjoy the season and find a way to get up, get out and get active with Howard County Recreation & Parks!

Ken Ulman Howard County Executive

John R. Byrd Director, Department of Recreation & Parks

Baltimore & Ohio (B&O) Railroad Station

Bollman Truss Bridge

A National Historic Landmark, the B&O Railroad Station in Ellicott City is the oldest surviving railroad station in the United States. Erected in 1830-31, the station served as the terminus of the railroad's original 13-mile section of track. In service until 1972, the station is now a living history museum offering programs and exhibits that explore the development of transportation in America and the station's role in historical events of the 19th and 20th centuries. Hours: Wednesday-Sunday, 11 AM-4 PM. Admission: $6, adults; $4, seniors (60+); $3 ages 2-12; Free, under 2 years. 2711 Maryland Avenue, Ellicott City, MD 21043 (intersection of Main St. and Maryland Ave. in the Historic District).

Blandair Farm

Blandair takes its name from Theodorick Bland, a colorful figure in early Maryland politics. He served as Chancellor of Maryland from 1824 until his death in 1846. While the property was farmed as early as 1798, most of the existing buildings date from the mid-19th century, and include a granary, a springhouse, some tenant houses and the brick main house. Howard County purchased the property in 1998 and plans to develop the site as a regional park. While public access to Blandair is limited during restoration, occasional heritage programs are held there. The farm was also the site of the 2003 International Preservation Trade Conference. 6651 Route 175, Columbia, MD 21044.

The Bollman Truss Bridge is the only known remaining example of the revolutionary all-iron truss system patented by Baltimore engineer Wendell Bollman in the mid-19th century. Constructed in 1869, the bridge was moved to its current site in 1888 and was in use until 1915. Designated a National Historic Landmark in 2000, it is now utilized as a pedestrian bridge connecting Historic Savage Mill with the Mill Trail, a walk linking old mill sites along the Patuxent River. 8650 Foundry Street, Savage, MD 20763.

Ellicott City Colored School, Restored

This one-room schoolhouse building was constructed in 1880 as the first public school for African-American children in Howard County. In use as a school until the early 1950s, the building was re-purchased by the county in 1995 and restored with the assistance of public and private funding. The building now houses a genealogical resource center and a museum chronicling the history of African Americans in Howard County. Changing exhibits and seminars highlight the contributions by people of color to the history of the region. Tours are offered Saturday and Sunday at 3 PM, April through October. Private and group tours are available year-round, weather permitting. 8683 Frederick Road, Ellicott City, MD 21043. Info: 410-313-5131.

Firehouse Museum

Pfeiffer’s Corner Schoolhouse

Originally constructed about 1883, the Pfeiffer’s Corner Schoolhouse is one of the very few remaining one-room schools in Howard County. Restoration is now complete. Children were educated within its walls for over 50 years until it was converted into a residence in the 1940s. It was almost demolished when new homes were built on the property in the 1980s, but was saved through the efforts of local school children. They raised funds to have it moved in 1988 to county-owned parkland along route 108 near Clarksville, where it stood for several years until a permanent location could be found. In 2003, it was moved to Rockburn Branch Park where it illustrates the changes over a 100-year time span of our schools, serves as a historic exhibit and provides space for demonstration classes, interpretive tours and small meetings. 6109 Rockburn Branch Park Road, Elkridge, MD 21227 (in Rockburn Branch Park).

Child Care  oward County Recreation & Parks offers Recreational H Licensed Child Care (RLC) programs for preschool (ELC) through Middle school students, along with our Therapeutic Recreation Extended Care (TREC). Our goal is to provide a safe and structured environment for children to have fun while participating in meaningful, group, recreational activities. Before a child can participate, parents must complete all licensing and required paperwork, including a health inventory, which requires a physical. All programs must meet and maintain minimum enrollment requirements to run. Fees are subject to change. Special accommodations or interpretive services can be provided at no additional cost but are not guaranteed; a request must be made at the time of registration. Because of the presence of children with severe allergic reactions, nuts and nut products are not served or permitted at any RLC programs.

I f space is available, a $50 non-refundable registration fee is required to enroll. If a program has already filled, you may place your child’s name on the waiting list at no cost. All RLC programs have a behavioral policy with standards of conduct enforced through the use of discipline, up to and including suspension and expulsion from the program. The primary concern of the Department must be the safety and well-being of all participants, even though it may cause inconvenience to parents in a particular case. The Department makes every effort to assist children and their parents in modifying a child’s behavior before their actions become a serious enough threat to require suspension. See the Parent Manual for a complete policy statement. For a list of who to contact and additional program information, visit www.howardcountymd.gov/rap and click on Licensed Child Care (on left side of webpage).

Concussion Information What is a concussion? A concussion is a type of brain injury that changes the way the brain normally works. A concussion is caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head. Concussions can also occur from a blow to the body that causes the head and brain to move rapidly back and forth. Even what seems to be a mild blow to the head can be serious.

What are some warning signs of a concussion? — For Immediate Attention Call 911 Signs Observed by a Parent/Guardian • Appears dazed or stunned • Is confused about assignment or position • Forgets sports plays • Is unsure of game, score, or opponent • Moves clumsily • Answers questions slowly • Loses consciousness (even briefly) • Shows behavior or personality changes • Can’t recall events prior to hit or fall • Can’t recall events after hit or fall

Signs Reported by the Athlete • Headache or “pressure” in the head • Nausea or vomiting • Balance problems or dizziness • Double or blurry vision • Sensitivity to light • Sensitivity to noise • Feeling sluggish, hazy, or groggy • Concentration or memory problems • Confusion • Does not "feel right"

What should you do if you think a concussion has occurred? 1. Seek medical attention right away.

A health care professional will be able to decide how serious the concussion is and when it is safe to return to play.

2. Keep your child out of play until medically cleared.

Concussions take time to heal. Don’t let your child return to play until a health care professional says it’s ok. Children who return to play too soon, while the brain is still healing, risk a greater chance of having a second concussion. Second or later concussions can be very serious. They can cause permanent brain damage, affecting your child for a lifetime.

3. Inform all coaches about any recent concussions.

Coaches should know if your child has had a recent concussion. Your child’s coach may not know about a concussion your child received in another sport or activity unless you tell them.

4. Help your child return to sports safely after a concussion.

As your child’s symptoms decrease, the extra help or support can be removed gradually. Children and teens who return to activities after a concussion may need to • Take rest breaks as needed • Spend fewer hours at activities • If in doubt, sit it out!

A Golf Experience

5-10 yrs / 4 wks, start dates below / $99 Join certified golf instructors for a unique, fun golf experience in an energetic and safe environment. By using fun themes and words like GRASS (Grip, Relax, Aim, Stance and Swing), children learn proper golf fundamentals positioning them for golf success. Children experience the game of golf from “green to tee.” We start on the putting green to learn the art of a good putt, and then we move to chipping stations to learn how to get the ball in the air. Next is pitching through fun, and sometimes moving targets. Hitting the ball long with the full swing completes the experience. We fit and supply real golf clubs for every child, and provide all other equipment used during the class. Registration: 410-313-7275. Info: Tessa Hurd, 410-313-4637 or thurd@howardcountymd.gov.

Registration Program fees are established by determining the cost of supplies; fees for instructors, rentals, registrations and program administration; and the price of marketing in order to deliver high quality programs at an affordable price. See our "How to Register" section on page 3.

Participation Only individuals who are registered may participate. Where age or grade restrictions apply, “age” usually refers to the age of the participant at the start of the program and “grade” to current grade. If any other standards apply, they will be noted in the Guide. We reserve the right to question grade or age and may request a birth certificate or other proof of eligibility. For many programs, registrants or parents/legal guardians of minor registrants will be required to provide a signed Participant Information form at the first meeting. The purpose of this form is to ensure that participants willingly share responsibility for their own safety. All activities contain certain inherent risks that each participant assumes. Due to the strenuous nature of some activities, each participant is urged to consult his or her physician concerning his or her fitness to participate. Please note that many programs will require confirmation that immunizations are current. A parent or legal guardian must accompany a child each day for both check-in and pick-up. It is your responsibility to sign your child in at the beginning of the program and sign your child out immediately following the program. Staff are not responsible for your child before or after scheduled activities. A fee may be assessed if your child is not picked up at the close of the program. Children must remain with the program for the full period scheduled. To leave before a day’s program is complete, a child must have written parental consent or the parent/legal guardian must pick the child up after notifying the program director. No refunds will be issued for time missed for this or from dismissals resulting from disciplinary action. In determining whether child is ready to participate in these activities, please be aware that our staff does not change diapers.
